Country music. Seriously.

When the Opposite’s True (Playlist)

This time, we’re looking for songs founded on mistruths. This can be as simple as claiming not to care when you really do or as complicated as tying a statement to an obviously false or impossible condition (when they grow cantaloupes on Mars, when you see me walk on water, when pigs fly) as a means of establishing its untruth. As always, you’re welcome to make your own additions in the Comments section.

  • The Grass is Blue – Dolly Parton
  • I Don’t Care – Blake Shelton
  • I’m Over You – Keith Whitley
  • I’ve Forgotten You – Rhonda Vincent
  • Missing You – Brooks & Dunn
  • Not That I Care – Willie Nelson
  • She Thinks I Still Care – George Jones
  • Cantaloupes on Mars – Sammy Kershaw
  • I Won’t Need You Anymore – Randy Travis
  • If I Don’t Love You (Grits Ain’t Groceries) – George Jones
  • Ocean Front Property – George Strait
  • When Pigs Fly – Kellie Coffey

  1. “When” by Shania Twain off of Come On Over jumps out at me.

    “Trying To Find Atlantis” by Jamie O’Neal is also a favorite of mine.

    Maybe “Love Ain’t Like That” by Faith Hill works? Almost…

  2. “Flowers On The Wall” comes to mind. I’ll have to think about it to see if I can remember anymore that you haven’t listed.

  3. Cool idea, I don’t have any to ad at this time. Unless Catherine Britt’s “The Upside Of Being Down” works, I’m not sure if it does.

  4. love your playlists… how about 2 playlists for election week… a protest/labor union list for the libs… an ass-kickin’ go american list for the repubs!

  5. When The Grass Grows Over Me – George Jones
    I Don’t Remember Loving You – John Conlee
    She Thinks I Still Care – George Jones

  6. Thought of another:

    Buicks to the Moon – Alan Jackson

  7. Would “Thanks A Lot” fit?

  8. I think so, Leeann. Thanks a lot for the addition… seriously.
